  • Minister Ong Ye Kung addressed that all students have to return to school as scheduled, and attendance is not on a ‘voluntary’ basis
  • Exceptions will be made for students with medical conditions though
  • Minister Ong said that it is likely the virus will stay with us for up to a year, till a vaccine is found. And it does not make sense that we keep our children home because of the virus
